Even though people like Rosemarie keep proving me wrong, if you want to start a blog, be prepared for a long slow road before you see any serious income from it.

  1. I LOVE UDEMY.

    Have gotten access to some amazing courses there and it really helped me improve my business and get some great ideas as well. Will check out the courses, thanks for sharing ;)

  2. This is awesome Nick! Perfect timing too! I’ve been looking to take my hustling to a bigger level to destroy my mortgage, the eBay one sounds very intriguing as I already utilize eBay for many thrift flips etc…Keep it up!

  3. Any recommendations for courses on how to build an online business for energy deregulation companies? This is a GREAT post – thank you! I’ve bookmarked at least 5 courses to buy before the deal goes away.

  4. Awesome listing! There are some really interesting ones on here. I wish I had time to take a class. :(

  5. Thanks for sharing this great deal Nick, I bought 4 different courses thanks to you! This is so awesome! I got one on copywriting by Len Smith, another on Social Media management, and 2 on iOS development. This is great stuff that’s really going to help me in my side hustling! Thanks again!

  6. I actually had the team at Udemy help me compile this list of their top web dev courses, given the ratings and the number of students enrolled. Because there are so many to choose from! :)

  7. Great post. I have a quick question for you….do you know how long you have to take a course that you purchase on Udemy? I’d like to buy about 10 of them, but want to make sure they don’t expire too quickly.

    Also, great show. It’s the one I listen to religiously.

    Thanks Nick!!

  8. This was a very helpful post for me as I’ve been hungry for something, I had forgotten about Udemy. I purchased 10 courses, how could I not at $10.00 per, I’m excited to dig in and get the wheels turning.

  9. A great selection of courses! What I like most about this type of top lists is that even after the promo codes expire, you can still find great deals as Udemy often offers discounts. Having the list ready for the next discounts is extremely useful. Thanks for sharing!

  10. Hi.
    I am a big fan of your blog. I had read many of your great articles and learn great techniques and methods to do proper research. This information again is very interesting and all case studies are very inspiring.
